Berryessa is a future Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station serving the Berryessa District in San Jose, California, United States. It is scheduled to open in December 2017.[1][2] It will be the first BART station ever built in San Jose,[4] and service will terminate here pending completion of the downtown San Jose subway (the last phase of the Silicon Valley BART extension). Due to a shortage of available rolling stock, it will initially be served by only one line at any one time.[5]

History[edit]

The $2.3-billion extension has two stations, and broke ground in 2012 with completion initially expected in 2016.[6] VTA received a $900 million grant for federal funding for the $2.3-billion Silicon Valley Extension in 2012.[7] Estimated opening is scheduled for December 2017.[2]
